down. >> here it's 6:09. up in reno, it's a few minutes later. they are actually farther west. that's one of those trivia questions. if you fly from los angeles to reno, you are actually traveling far west because of how nevada is shaped. let me get you caught up and close the book on september. in las vegas, all of the highs and lows averaged together, it came out just barely above normal. we only got a few drops of rain. that's not unusual for september. the global numbers, thoh, now in and tabulated. about .75 above normal. if you are keeping score at home, that's almost 32 years since the last time we were not above normal globally for a month. how about the clouds we had today? early, a couple of showers north of the las vegas valley. they were slight showers. by mid to late morning, those clouds pretty much gone and we had breezes especially in
6:20 pm
recently. they were up around 10, 15 in the last 20 minutes. beautiful downtown henderson, a block off water street, they gusted to 23. currently at 87. jones and tropicana, checking in at 85 degrees. so the breezes have been a story again today, although they are simmering down in a huge way now. but yesterday, it was the northern valley neighborhoods up around 30 miles an hour. today, southern valley neighborhoods between 20, 34, the top gusts. outside of the valley, any wind at all. that's been the story outside of town. officially at mccarran, top temperature today, 91 degrees, 8 above normal. we've been on a role with these temperatures in the 90s. we'll start to see them fall off. the air quality report all in the green. we think that will hold for the next couple of days as well. tomorrow your start on hump day, mid-60s. 80s by lunchtime. mid- to upper 80s for a high. the entire valley will pretty
6:21 pm
wind light. while we were talking about matthew, nicole formed in the atlantic. but now, she's gonna pick up and move and sideswipe bermuda as a category 2 hurricane. that can be very problematic over the next couple days. we had the clouds earlier. they've cleared out. i expect a patch of clouds as they thin to work into our sky tomorrow. we'll be mostly sunny but we'll get a few clouds tomorrow. the big change comes as of alaska and mock works through -- and works through southern nevada. 41 on the mountain. 44 in pahrump for lows tonight. boulder city looking at 85 tomorrow. 92 in laughlin and 81 in sandy valley. our valley should have an overnight low of 65 degrees under a clear sky. not too much wind. that pattern holds tomorrow. 87, your expected high temperature.
6:22 pm
your seven-day forecast, here we go. we'll see the temperature with a downward trend slowly but watch out for those winds. on friday we're thinking gusts over 40 miles an hour. about 30 miles an hour on saturday and another surge of potential 40-mile-an-hour gusts on sunday. so if you have a three-day weekend starting friday, look out. a bumpy ride. the temperature will be in the low 80s next week. we'll be able to celebrate more mighty fine las vegas weather. >> of a we get through the a few moments ago, state senators have voted in favor of bill 1 which would put a stadium in las vegas for the raiders. 16 senators voted no. while -- 16 voted yes. five voted no. >> jeff gillan has been in carson city. we're waiting for him to get ready for this live shot. but this is something we've been following so closely. i mean we're talking about day two of the special session.
6:23 pm
made by this evening and just like that, we made las vegas history. >> well, okay. history for the senate, the bulk of the senate saying let's go forward. now it gets kicked over to the assembly. it's anybody's guess as to what happens there. not a done deal but this special session, it really was a big, big thing. one of the hurdles was to get a majority vote in the senate for the raiders to come to las vegas and so now we've seen that happen and what happens in the adjourning until thursday. it will be a little bit of a while until we get an answer from that mart of our legislature. we're going to check in with jeff to see if we can get him sometime during this broadcast. but in the meantime, we'll take a break.
